We tend to focus a lot on the bigger parts of our bodies, like the upper and lower back, pelvis, and shoulder girdle. But what about our head and jaw? The head has many muscles that can play a role in how the jaw relates to the head, and the head relates to the neck. This is exactly what we are exploring in this video.
In this class we dive into our hips, sacrum, lower back and (yes!) abdomen. As the fascia is truly a multidimensional connective tissue, we will explore how e.g. moving the legs, can lead to movement in all of the areas above. We will start by warming up the lower back deeply, softening our superficial muscles in the lower back, and mobilizing the lowest vertabrae L4/L5 in relationship with S1/Sacrum.
In this ‘Liberate Movement’ class, my focus is on the lower ribcage. The movement capacity of the lower ribs is for a big part dependent on muscles, ligaments, and fascia that run down the lower back towards the pelvis.
In this ‘Liberate Movement’ class, I focus on the muscles underneath our base of the skull (suboccipital muscles), which have a direct relationship to the muscles in our face and eyes in particular. Releasing tension in the suboccipital muscles can help to release tension in your face, which also affects your mental/emotional state.
